I was somewhat disappointed. I read Suzanne Wright's other book, Feral Sins, before this one and I LOVED it. This book wasn't what I expected. There were WAY too many characters to try and wrap your head around in such a short period of time. I also felt like the majority of the book was describing each of these said people to the T. I know there were training scenes and fighting scenes but I really didn't want to hear every detail of what everyone was doing. I felt like the two main characters were rushed together at the end. Sam was willing to just be with Jared at the end, no fuss or thought. I found it strange and rushed.
